Does Tewksbury (south tewksbury) still have a gang/drug problem?

I remember 4 or 5 years ago there were stories about the crime rate being on the rise in Tewksbury, the surprising part was that the Lowe Sun mentioned south Tewksbury (area of town from the Shawaheen river to silver lake) as having a supposed gang and drug problem. I'm aware that the crime rate in tewksbury has continued to rise even in the past couple years but I'm just curious as to whether or not south Tewksbury is still at the center of this "crime wave" or if the media was just over exaggerating. I now live in Dracut so Im not exposed to Tewksbury like I was growing up. All feed back is appreciated.

Drug problem yes, south tewksbury has no shortage of junkies and dealers. I even heard of a group of kids 16 or 17 years old from tewksbury who were going into Worcester and Boston/south Boston robbing high level drug suppliers. Stick up kids. As for a gang problem? Idk anything about that, but there are probably a few wanna be thugs in south tewksbury calling themselves a gang.
